Default Want to make a Guide or How-To, but don't know where to begin? Click here for any EASY 5 step guide to making a great guide or how-to!

Okay, so i've read and seen many guides and how-to's that are good ideas, and are topics that a lot of people want to learn to do, but they hard to read, and very confusing.

And just so you know, I thought of the idea to make a guide on guides one night when I couldn't get to sleep. So I just got my phone (it was closest to me and I couldn't find any paper) and typed out a message to remind myself of this idea and what I could put in the actual guide.

Anyways, back to the reason you clicked on this guide--the 5 easy steps!





1. Have a topic that you haven't seen a guide on! Members on WI don't want to see Guides and How-To's on the same topic over and over again. To find if there already is or was a Guide or How-To for a certain topic, go to the top of the screen and click "Search", and search for it in this section.


2. Use various sentence lengths and types! Make sure that all of your sentences aren't the same length. If they are all the same legth, it makes your guide boring, and nobody wants to get bored reading about something they want to know about! Put some questions, or exclamation points in your Guide or How-To every now and then!


3. Bold important things and use larger font sizes! If you bold the important things, members will know that it's important, and that they need to know it. Nobody wants to have to read itsy-bitsy little words, it hurts peoples eyes! You don't want to be responsible for partially damaging a members eyes, do you? ???


4. Use dark colors! I've seen many members use yellows, light grays, light pinks, and neon colors in there threads, and that hurts your eyes more than itsy-bitsy text! If you use dark colors, like black, navy, dark green, or dark gray, you won't blind a fellow member!


5. Pictures! I am a very visual person. So when I see guides that are telling you how to (for example) draw a Webkinz Firefawn, I'd like to see what it looks like in the first, second, third and so on steps. It'd be even better if you posted what it looked like when you were all finished!




Well, that's pretty much it--please post and comment!

Great guide on guides!
LOL, I'm trying to start one myself, but I'm unsure of the topic.
This really helps

Anyone want to comment?

It took me a while to even do this thread, and a lot longer to think of the ideas to put in it.
